Iím a junior in high-school and, like anyone in my predicament, I want to have something to show for it when I apply to colleges at the end of next semester. What I want to do is publish a little anthology of all my rock band tributes (rock band tributes meaning prose pieces, which have links to each below.) in a Shel Silverstein fashion, with an illustration of what the writing is about or depicting in the background of the actual piece. Iíve got a ton to make a little book too, but I ALSO wanna make the anthology from Aerosmith to ZZ Top with each rock band. I canít do that without the help of an artist that isnít busy. Iíd obviously be writing more, and this list thatís down below will be growing with the coming weeks or even days. I need someone who can help me out, and believe me, if you help me finish it, Iíll give you credit (meaning your name on the published product as the illustrator) and itíd be something you can add onto your rťsumť. The ONLY requirements is that youíre 1) willing to work for no money (sorry, Iím a kid in high school, not CEO of a corporation. I donít even have a debit card. I still have to use my parentís credit card if I want something from the internet and even that can wait until Christmas. haha) 2) not busy and 3) love classic rock music (not that it really matters, but I mean, if you hate rock music then this wonít exactly be a cup of tea for you, will it?).
Some more details on the project: Okay, well, have you heard of Shel Silversteinís poem anthologies like Falling Up or Where the Sidewalk Ends? You know, the ones where with each poem, thereís a little doodle or illustration that correlates or portrays a meaning to each poem or depicts the poemís content? My idea is that, but with entire illustrations instead of doodles, and about rock bands and with prose instead of poetry. I mean, you can only help if youíre willing to put up with my requests, because I have a certain vision for some of these bandsí pieces and what I want to be on that page, since itís an anthology of rock band prose pieces. Like, take for example Foster the People. I want the illustration to depict what the pieceís meaning is and have the illustration in the art style of the album art for Torches. OR take for example the Beatles and their piece I've written, maybe Iíd want the illustration to have the art style of the album art for Revolver or Yellow Submarine. Some bands I donít even have an idea for, like Pearl Jam or U2. You get me? I have certain ideas that go with each piece, but they all need to be made reality on certain art styles. I need an artist that can do many different art styles at my request. Itís a tough and very demanding project, believe me. Iíll appreciate any help I can get and youíll get credit as an illustrator on this huge project.
Hereís a list of all the bands Iíve done:

My dream is to be a published author before the end of my junior year, but I canít do it alone with the vision I have in mind. If anyone with an artistic talent can help me do it, Iíll love you forever. Youíd be one of my best friends for life and a future work partner. You have no idea how much this means to me. (I actually sent an email to Rolling Stone magazine trying to contribute. Like theyíll reply.) Thank you for taking your time to read this. If youíre interested, reply to this thread or send me a message. I'LL APPRECIATE ANY HELP!
